For the first time since we signed Ryan Kent, £7.5M is not only looking like money well spent, but an outright bargain.
A solid start to the season has grown into exceptional form over the past two or three matches, and it’s safe to say Kent has become once again, Rangers’ most devastating player and most dangerous.
Indeed, Leeds United are said to be coming back with an alleged £15M bid, but let’s face it, that’ll be laughed out of the office.
Ryan Kent would set any suitors back at least £25M on current form, because this kid is absolutely electric.
He’s reminding us of that superb form of late 2018 when he finally landed, with that three-match clutch of incredible performances v Celtic, Hearts and Rapid and those performances sold fans on him completely.
Remember him leaving Brown on his **** for dead and the only way the Celtic captain could stop him was to haul him down. Stuff to make the crowd rise to its feet.
He’s back in that zone again, and he’s destroying defences like they’re not there once more.
He looks happy, he looks comfortable, and he’s delivering on that investment.
A lot of fans weren’t happy with the fee, and until even two weeks ago called him a waste of money.
We always said the cash was too much at the time, but it was a cost we had to make, and we had to sign him.
And while last season was a little patchy and he didn’t quite hit the heights, six matches in this time around and he clearly already has.
We don’t want to lose this kid, and while he’s replaceable like anyone is, ideally we’d rather keep someone who’s going to frighten Celtic like he will.
There’s only one question begging to be answered:
Just what will Rangers have when both he and Joe Aribo are together in harmony and in top form?
